[ cheers and applause ] that's great to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. following reports that secretary of state rex tillerson called president trump a "moron" this summer, white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders

[ light laughter ] trump has full confidence in you. you're gonna be fine. [ light laughter ] during his visit to puerto rico yesterday, president trump asked a service man how he feels to be representing the coast guard before the representative corrected trump and said he was a member of the air force. even more embarrassing, trump tried to order an ice cream sandwich from this guy. [ laughter ] "they're out of ice cream." [ light laughter ] former first lady michelle obama yesterday criticized the lack of diversity in congress. said congress, "not true! we have white men from 50 different states!"

[ laughter ] the nobel prize in chemistry was awarded today to three scientists who have developed a new way to capture 3d images of biological molecules. also awarded, the nobel prize for lack of chemistry. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i think they might get it next year too. they're going to be a dynasty. [ light laughter ] according to a recent report, the price of legal marijuana has dropped by almost 19% this year. said marijuana users, "19% of what?" [ laught
12:40 am
[ applause ] a man in tennessee was arrested for burglary while dressed like a pirate. police located the suspect by following his footprints. [ light laughter ] that's exactly what we deserved and no more. [ light laughter ] for that joke about a peg leg. [ light laughter ] the louvre museum in france has decided to remove an outdoor sculpture -- [ light laughter ] depicting two buildings having sex -- [ light laughter ] after it was deemed to be offensive. and nobody was more scarred by the exhibit than the building's son. [ laughter ] [ french accent ] "mom, dad, i have a piece of art at the louvre." "oh, i'm so excited to come. is it a painting?" "no, it is two buildings [ bleep ]." [ laughter ] a city in georgia has voted to change its name to "amazon" if the company selects it as the

[ cheers and applause ] one of our favorites. we have a couple more friends of our show are back. they're here to chat about the baseball postseason. mlb network analysts kevin millar and sean casey, everyone. [ cheers and applause ] and stand-up comedy from a very funny man. matt goldich is joining us tonight.
12:42 am
so, you're here on a good night. before we get to all that, president trump is coming off a disastrous visit to puerto rico yesterday, as he and congress deal with the renewed debate over gun laws. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: even before he arrived yesterday, trump seemed obsessed with one thing -- getting high marks for his responses to the hurricanes in texas, florida, and puerto rico. >> i think it's now acknowledged what a great job we've done and people are looking at that. and in texas and in florida we get an a-plus. and i'll tell you what, i think we've done just as good in puerto rico. >> seth: he's so desperate for an a-plus. i wouldn't be surprised if trump has someone write out fake report cards just e
12:43 am
stick them on the white house fridge. [ laughter ] his dream -- his dream is for air force one to have this bumper sticker. [ laughter and applause ] but if trump really wants an a-plus for puerto rico, the very least he can do is stop blaming the victims of the hurricane for their own situation, as he did repeatedly over the weekend when he attacked the mayor of san juan. and yet, right after he gave himself an a-plus, trump said this about the recovery effort in puerto rico. >> now the roads are cleared. communication starting to come back. we need their truck drivers. their drivers have to start driving trucks. we have to do that. so at a local level, they have to give us more help. >> seth: no! that's not how this works. only donald trump could fly into a disaster zone and tell the victims to help him. [ light laughter ] how are you so bad at this? you're like a surgeon who asks his patient, "before we get started, can you take a look at this mole on my back? [ light laughter ] it's freaking me out." of course, this is all before trump arrived in puerto rico. i'm sure once he got there and witnessed the devastation firsthand he changed his tune. here he is meeting puerto rican officials yesterday and introducing his budget director, mick mulvaney. >> mick mulvaney is here -- right there. and mick is a judge of a thing called budget. now i hate to tell you,
12:44 am
our budget a little out of whack. [ audience groans ] >> seth: of course, "a little out of whack" is what trump's report card would actually say. [ laughter ] trump somehow finds a way to screw up situations where all you have to do as a president, or even as a human being, is express compassion, show some grace and offer aid. for example, trump met yesterday with hurricane victims and surveyed the damage to their home. and these are the sage words our president parted to them before he left. >> we have a good house, thank god. >> and in the meantime, here you are, right? >> exactly, exactly. >> we're going to help you out. >> thank you. >> have a good time. >> seth: have a good time? [ laughter ] they're hurricane victims and you sound like you're hosting a barbecue. [ laughter ] "have a good time. try the potato salad. everyone says it's an a-plus." [ laughter ] and by the way, this isn't even the first time he said that exact thing to hurricane victims. remember texas? >> have a good time, everybody. i'm going to be doing a little help over here. hey, can youan
12:45 am
it's a lot of -- >> yes, sir. >> have a good time. [ light laughter ] >> seth: have a good time with what? the bucket you put in his lap? [ light laughter ] "you're going to love this bucket. you can sit on it, store things in it, put it on your head. it's a lot of fun. have a good time." [ light laughter ] but if anyone seemed to be having a good time yesterday, it was trump himself. just watch him greet a crowd of hurricane victims in desperate need of supplies. after handing out a few items, he literally started throwing paper towels into the crowd via jump shot. >> seth: they were hit with a category five hurricane and you're handing out paper towels? [ light laughter ] how absorbent do you think they are? [ laughter ] "these are one million ply." [ light laughter ] he looks like a drunk grandfather playing pop-a-shot at dave & buster's. "grandpa, we have to go." "i'm close to getting enough tickets for a giant pencil!"
12:46 am
[ light laughter ] trump is clearly much more comfortable tossing paper towels into a crowd than he is dealing with a crisis, because he has no idea what to do. he says things like "have a good time." because his life would be so much easier if everyone would just have a good time. he's like a stressed out mom trying to keep a thanksgiving dinner from going off the rails. "can't everybody just have a good time?" [ light laughter ] when he doesn't tell people to have a good time, he just sort of rambles. like yesterday when he called on a representative from the air force to give an update on the runways in puerto rico, which somehow led to him discussing new fighter jets that he apparently thinks are invisible. >> we're ordering hundreds of millions of dollars worth of new airplanes for the air force. , especially the f-35. do you like the f-35? i said how does it do it in fights and how do they do in fights with the f-35? said, "we do very well. you can't see it." you can't see it." you literally -- you can't see it.
12:47 am
that you can't see, right? >> seth: because that's what people without drinking water want to hear. you just spent a ton of money on invisible planes. [ light laughter ] "sir, you look thirsty. would you like to see an invisible plane? [ light laughter ] trust me, it's up there. and it's a beauty. oh, it landed on my hand. [ laughter ] that's a delicious invisible plane. so what's going on in puerto rico?" the government's botched response to the crisis in puerto rico raised the basic question, can you count on your government for help when you need it? obviously if you're wealthy you can. as we speak, trump and republicans in congress are working on a plan to spend $2 trillion on tax cuts for the richest americans. but what about the victims of hurricane maria? or the victims of the horrific shooting in las vegas? we shouldn't have to plead with our government to do something after a tragedy, and yet here we are. if fact, the only gun bills the republicans have taken up recently would actually loosen gun laws. >> republican leaders in congress were pushing bills to ease rules on gun silencers and concealed
12:48 am
lines. >> this bill that is go -- making its way through the house which calls for loosening gun restrictions and also, making it easier to purchase silencers for guns. >> seth: so what could possibly be the explanation for a bill like this? supporters argue that silencers, also known as suppressors, are actually necessary to reduce hearing loss for gun owners. >> gun control advocates say the bill is about militarizing weapons, not about hearing. >> it's a complete misunderstanding of the noise levels that unsuppressed firearms have. the risk that both recreational shooters and hunters have to things like tinnitus, which is ringing in your ears, and noise-induced hearing loss as a result to exposure to loud noises. >> seth: oh, all this time i thought congress and the gun lobby were ignoring our pleas for reasonable gun safety
12:49 am
regulations. but it turns out they just can't hear us. so, in that case -- we need reasonable gun safety regulations. [ cheers and applause ] one of the co-sponsors of the bill, south carolina congressman jeff duncan, said he hoped the house would vote on the bill soon and defended it by saying it was polite to use a silencer. >> this bill isn't on the schedule that i know of. it has passed out of full committee and leadership has talked about bringing it up this fall. i hope by this week or next week, but we'll see. actually in europe it's considered to be neighborly to shoot a suppressed weapon, to dampen that sound. >> seth: oh, suddenly republicans care about what europe does? because in europe, it's also considered neighborly to give everyone health care, make college free, and take naps in the middle of the day for no reason at all. [ cheers and applause ] also europe has, like, five guns total, and three of them are held by guys who literally aren't allowed to move. [ light laughter ]
12:50 am
now of course anytime the conversation turns to gun control, there are those who claim gun control wouldn't stop tragedies like this from happening. an argument we heard most recently on the fox business network. >> if that psychopath had god forbid, driven a truck into that crowd and killed a hundred people, would we be talking about truck control? >> seth: hmm. would we be talking about truck control? that's a good question. here's a good answer. no. i mean, forget for a minute that there's more truck control than gun control and that you need a license to drive one. there's always this slippery slope argument of if there's gun control, where does it stop. guns. it will stop with guns. one reasonable thing doesn't always lead to something crazy. you can have gay marriage without people marrying their pets. health care for all? what's next? mammograms for sandwiches? [ light laughter ] mammiches? [ light laughter ] gun violence is an epidemic and we need our government to do something ou
12:51 am
republicans in congress what they plan to do, their answer is basically -- >> have a good time. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheeppuse ] we'll be right back with tina fey.

[ laughter ] i didn't know what happened. i get over, "that was the greatest thing ever!" i'm like, "i just blacked out. what happened?" i didn't know what happened. [ light laughter ] >> seth: did you hear -- did the pitcher say anything? >> no, but that night i took all
1:11 am
the boys out. we're out there having a drink and stuff. and all of a sudden, the pitcher was there. then our team was at the bar. i'm like -- they're like, "he wants to meet you." i'm like, "get him over here. i want to give him a hug." he's like, "i thought you were a dad, i just figure i'll throw a fastball. it was a 1-0 pitch." and i'm like, "thank you so much." [ light laughter ] >> seth: well it was great to watch. and you mentioned bill murray was a owner of the team. he was a first base coach a few times when you played. >> he was our first base coach. one day, i think i told the story, but he came to the field. he was in the same clothes. i'm like, "bill, what happened? you can't change?" and he got kicked out of his hotel room for playing ball with his kids. the broke a window and they kicked bill murray out, he slept in the parking lot at st. paul. >> seth: wow. >> yeah. so now, this is bill. this is his little bill. yeah, this is what you get. and now he's rich again. [ light laughter ] >> seth: you, you -- >> at the all-star game last year, real quick. my kids were there, we're sitting down. and you know, a guy hasn't come. and my kids were like, "who is this, there?" i don't know, here comes bill murray. it's like, hey, it's bill murray. my son andrew is sitting there. so, we're watching the game. all of a sudden, i see bull murray just reaching over just crushing my son's fries. boom. [ laughter ] and he's like, and my son leans in, and he's like, "dad, bull murray keeps eating my fries." i go, "let him eat 'em all." >> let him eat 'em. >> let him eat 'em, he's bull murray. [ laughter ] >> seth: you gotta let bill murray eat your fries. >> yes. >> seth: obviously, last year, a historic year in baseball. the cubs win the world series. and it was great because everybody was rooting for the cubs. there was a time where anyone was behind the idea of the cubs winning.
1:12 am
>> oh, yeah. >> seth: your reds eliminated the cubs from the playoffs. >> yup. >> seth: and a lot of people feel sympathy for cubs fans. you do not choose the path of sympathy. >> i did not. and the reason was, 'cause when you're in cincinnati, obviously the cubs fans travel well. they're all there all the time. and everyone -- every time we went to chicago, they would kill us, right. all the time. and when you come out, seht, after the games, you roll up to the bus and there's always -- there was a bar right there and the fans would be like, "hey." you know, saying some things i can't say on tv. but, "yo, you guys stink." basically. >> their number one! >> all these -- yeah. all these years of that. so then, 2003 with the reds, we knock 'em out of the playoffs in that -- in the last couple games of the year. so they're out of the playoffs. we come to the bus. the fans aren't saying anything. and we're all like, "oh, what are you gonna say now? we finally knocked you out." so sure enough, at like 5:00, you're rolling out of wrigley's on a thursday. it's packed. traffic, you know. bumper to bumper. >> seth: yeah, all bars. >> all bars. all bars.
1:13 am
bars everywhere. so we're like four blocks away. we're bumper to bumper. you see this packed cubs bar. just overflowing. i go up to the bus driver and i go, "let me out." he's like, "what?" and he's like, "we're in traffic." i go, "you got to let me out." and barry larkin. i'm like, "larkin, tell him to let me out." he was like, "let him out." so, next thing you know, i'm full suit. i walk out. walk right into this bar. and i'm like, "hey." and like, everyone kind looks at me like, "who's this idiot?" i'm like, "hey, all you chicago cub fans, the cincinnati reds just kicked your butt. like they say in chicago, better luck next season!" right? and i think it's really funny, until like 20 guys don't think it's funny. they start coming after me, and chasing me. and i'm like, "open the door!" to the bus driver. [ laughter ] oh, my gosh, just like -- this was such a bad idea. i like dive on the bus "dukes of hazard" style. boom, i'm in there. slide in through the thing. and then i get on the bus. everyone's pounding on the bus. and like fans are now on our bus. barry larkin said 19 years in the big leagues, greatest thing he's ever seen. [ laughter ] >> seth: this is -- i'm new to fatherhood. this is one of the greatest things i've ever seen. you were recently traveling with your son. >> i was. >> seth: you have -- how many kids? you have three or four? >> i have four, seth. >> seth: you both have four, right? >> it's lonely in beaumont, texas.

[ light laughter ] >> seth: you -- you've been married 20 years? >> oh, yeah. oh, yeah. >> seth: and i heard this story, which was fantastic. you went out of your way for your groomsman at your wedding, to give them a piece of baseball memorabilia. >> yes, memorabilia. yeah, so it was my rookie year. i'm hitting like 250. i'm like, i'm gonna be out of here soon. like, if i don't start hitting, you know, they're gonna send me down. but i'm like, my wedding's coming up, so i was thinking i've got ten groomsmen for some reason, you know what i mean? and i'm like, i've gotta -- i've gotta find a way to get these guys something cool. like some memorabilia. so i'm like, "i'll start collecting bats, right?" so i play first base. hold runners all.

[ laughter ] right? so i'm holding him on, i'm like, "hey, rickey." i'm so nervous, but i'm like, i gotta do it for my groomsman. i'm like, "any chance you could send over a signed bat? i need one more bat for my wedding, for my groomsman." he looks at me, he's like, "rickey don't sign bats. rickey steals bases." bam! he stole second. [ laughter ] all right, looks like i ain't getting that tenth bat. what i did was i signed another bat from -- the kid -- my groomsmen had eight good bats, and two from me.
